Sketching with a Brush in 3 Easy Steps

Sketching with a brush can be done in 3 simple steps:

Step 1:

First, you make a light pencil indication of the main lines of the composition.

Then, using ink or black water color, you create the general outline of the subject.


Step 2:

You start the shading by brushing into the largest areas.


Step 3:

The rest of the darks follow and the sketch is completed when the details are rendered.


That's it! The 3 steps to sketching with a brush are simple... but you need to practice to make it that simple!
